This little habit is all about doing just that. Resilience was rated by founders as the most important skill or characteristic needed as an entrepreneur, with 92% of founders selecting it over problem-solving, motivation and even communication

Time is a fixed resource, which makes your time as a founder a precious asset. Through this lens, perhaps our most important job is to define which priorities get our time and focus. Once we’ve done that we can make time for these priorities. That’s what our Big Rocks FounderFuel habit is all about. It’s not easy though… This ruthless focus is a particularly tough ask of entrepreneurs. More often than not, we’re wearing multiple hats

How many times can you hear yourself thinking “If I can just get this finished” or “I should just do this one last thing” at the end of your day or week? Maybe it’s the craving to achieve just a bit more and get that hit of dopamine for ticking something else off the list. Or perhaps it’s that misplaced sense of guilt that

Do some of your team start to get really uncomfortable when you start changing their plans? Or others start twitching when you are trying to agree to deadlines? This is the conundrum of the Judger and Perceiver personality traits, and it could well be having an impact on your project deliverables and team dynamics.  It turns out that whether we plan every detail of a holiday, or just love to go with the flow, it has

Big shout out to Cameron Albert-Deich of Inc magazine for this moving story on founder wellbeing featuring weare3Sixty - amazing to see it as the main homepage story too!

But this story really focuses on how positive changes can make us STRONGER as founders (something

Ever wonder why one of the smartest people in your team is staying silent in a meeting on a subject they know about? Or why someone else just doesn’t seem to want to stop talking? The answer lies on the Introversion Extroversion scale.

weare3sixty and Tech Nation have today announced that monthly FounderCircles from weare3Sixty will become part of the Applied AI programme and the FinTech programme this winter. The FounderCircles, which will be facilitated by weare3sixty entrepreneur-focused coaches, are designed to give founders the skills and peer-support required for the rollercoaster ride of running and scaling a startup.

What can founders learn from athletes when it comes to getting in the zone to perform under pressure? How important is recovery to performing at our best? Why is it bad that we forget to celebrate the wins? And what can we learn from the world's most effective teams that inspires our teams to want to do their very best? These questions and many more were explored with Olympian and World Champion rower Alex Partridge

With over 70% of founders saying running a business has affected their physical or mental health, and 68% struggling with regular sleep problems, it comes as no surprise that running a startup is tough. As founders, every single day we choose an amplified lifestyle: high stakes, and the chance to create something great

Is it me or are our thoughts just a little bit harder to tame these days? It seems a lot of our founders feel this at the moment. You know the drill… you’re trying to sleep, but your brain has decided “let’s do just one more rehearsal of the [pitch / meeting / awkward conversation – delete as appropriate]”.
